The future of materials science is borderless, cooperative, and distributed across the globe. This necessitates flexible, reconfigurable software defined research workflows, which we herein demonstrate by integrating multiple disciplines and modalities. Our brokering approach to research orchestration exposes entire laboratories in a cooperative multi-tenancy platform that is asynchronous, modular, and resilient. To the best of our knowledge, this constitutes the first international materials acceleration platform (MAP) which is herein demonstrated through a battery electrolyte workflow that ran in five countries over two weeks. We discuss the lessons learned from multi-tenancy and fault tolerance and chart a way to a universal battery MAP with fully ontology- based schemas and cost-aware orchestration.
